Meet Our Team / Yoga Teachers in Rishikesh

The Founder | Yogi Suryans Thakur

Though the art of connecting sacred through body came much later, I awakened to the magic of yoga and power of nature at a very young age. The holy city of Rishikesh, often claimed to be the 'Yoga capital of India', raised me to the very essence of it in me. I have been observing and admiring the very beauty of yoga and the powers it sustains right from my birth in this holy city. Through my commitment to learn and spread to the world what is pure and pious, the yoga, an art to connecting to nature, I, Yogi Suryans Thakur, founded Om Yoga Rishikesh, a place where you truly discover yourself and learn the very essence of yoga and its powers. To begin my never ending journey of yoga I started by practicing Sivananda yoga at the Sivananda ashram in Kerala, where I studied various arts of yoga and the discovered the art of losing oneself to nature's wisdom. While practicing at the Sadanand ashram I acquired the art of Iyengar yoga under the blessings of senior teachers in Rishikesh and Pune, where I return every year to deepen my knowledge of yoga. Having been in the profession of continuous teaching as well as learning yoga since year 2000, I have not only developed an understanding of yoga but the human behaviors. To spread my learnings to the world around, I have been giving workshops in various countries across Europe (France, Belgium, Denmark) and Asia (China, Russia) for a long time. My commitment to learn and impart this very art lead me to found Om Yoga Rishikesh in, founded in the year 2005, where I teach daily classes and take intensive workshops for all levels. As a teacher, I have developed love in combining elements from my heritage and travel experience across the world to convey the art in the simplest possible manner. To me, Yoga is not just a way to gain a healthy body but a way of self-discovery to shape your behavior towards mankind.
